Nokia, the world's biggest mobile phone maker, has agreed to buy navigation specialist Navteq, a deal that Nokia says will help it expand its business into location-based Internet services. The Finnish phone giant will pay $8.1 billion for the Chicago-based company, pending regulatory and shareholder approval. Nokia's offer of $78 per share represents a 34 percent premium to Navteq's stock price of one month ago, Navteq Chairman of the Board Christopher Galvin noted.


download maps without map loader

Nokia Map Loader only works on Windows, needs .net framework, and if you add a new map the map loader deletes all your existing maps so you'll have to download them all over again. But you don't need Nokia Map Loader. http://nokiamaps.moo.no links to all maps on Nokia's smart2go server. Works with any browser on any operating system, including Mac and Linux. No need to install anything on your computer, so it works when you're in a hotel, school, at work, or in an internet cafe.
If your phone talks WiFi or 3G you can add and update maps from your phone's web browser without even touching a computer.
